How to exchange greeting?

Abdullaah bin Salaam (RA) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (SAW) saying, “O people exchange greetings of peace, (i.e, say As-Saalamu’alaikum to one another), feed people, strengthen the ties of kinship, and be in prayer when others are asleep, you will enter Jannah in peace.”
